MPW is the largest municipal electric utility in Iowa, providing power to Muscatine residents, businesses, and industries. When we have excess energy, we also sell our excess capacity to wholesale markets that serve other utilities across the nation. Generating our own electricity helps us control costs and maintain rates that are among the lowest in Iowa – and significantly lower than the national average. We have a generating nameplate capacity of 293.55 MW.
